Guide for playing 'Doc' on 'Kanal'.

Rainbow Six: Guides - Guide for playing 'Doc' on 'Kanal'. image 10

[DISCLAIMER: This guide is intended to be as bare bones as possible in order to give general advice to any new Rainbow Six: Siege players. In addition to this article being opinionated, I would like to also state that zero-sum strats in this game do not exist and the tell of a good Siege player is their decision making and adaptation to the changing battlefield.]   Kanal is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) currently only found in ranked play though that may be subject to change as the developers could add the map to the pro-league map roster after observing how the map plays now. The current architecture of the map is fairly balanced, advantages will change based on which site is being played and how the ban phase plays out at the beginning of the match.   Doc is a one speed, three armour defending operator. Doc’s ability is the ‘Stim Pistol’; a projectile gadget which shoots medical stims, capable of healing teammates with low HP as well as reviving teammates who are in a DBNO state. Doc is most commonly used for the operators MP5 which can be customized to have an ACOG equipped as an optic. Due to the MP5’s low recoil, the ACOG can be highly useful if used to hold long angles on the bomb site. This makes Doc ideal as an anchor.   If you are to be in accordance with the current meta, Doc’s loadout should be as follows; -PRIMARY - MP5 (WITH ACOG) -SECONDARY - LFP586 (Revolver) -UTILITY - Can vary based upon the needs of the team. (Personally I always bring Barbed wire.)   DEFENDING: [2F] SERVER(A) - RADAR(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the reinforced wall on the south side of ‘Renovations’ as this will provide the attackers with clear lines of sight directly into the Radar(B) as well as access to the bomb site to plant the defuser. Doc should be playing on the bomb site inside of Server(A). Since attackers will commonly attempt to flank the defenders through Sky Bridge, Doc is the ideal operator for holding a long angle from Server(A) looking all the way down into Sky Bridge and Printer window. It is also common for defenders to place barbed wire on the green stairs to provide defenders with an audio que in the event that attackers push up the green stairs from the first floor.   POSITIONING: [2F] SERVER(A) - RADAR(B)

  DEFENDING: [1F] COAST GUARD(A) - LOUNGE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control of ‘Scuba’ and ‘Printer’ stairs, as well as the hallway-landing which separates the two. After establishing control of the northern stairwells, attackers will want to breach the reinforced wall between the lower-printer-stairs-landing and Lounge(B). This will provide attackers with completely exposing the Lounge(B) bomb site as well as position attackers to plant the defuser in a variety of different safe plant spots. Doc should be playing inside of Coast Guard(A). This will allow you to be positioned in a central location in order to assist any teammates who may be in need of an HP boost. Since Coast Guard - Lounge is a rarely played site, there isn't a very well established meta to follow so the defenders will have to be willing to adapt to the changing battlefield.   POSITIONING: [1F] COAST GUARD(A) - LOUNGE(B)

DEFENDING: [BSMNT] KAYAKS(A) - SUPPLY(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by attackers gaining control of the first floor inside of Coast Guard and Lounge as the hatches located on the floors of these two rooms offer great lines of site and access points to the basement. It is very common for defenders to be playing inside of Bathroom and Lockers, located directly across the hall from the bomb sites in the basement. Doc will be best positioned on this bomb site by playing inside of Scuba. Although there are not a large amount of long-angles which can be held on this bomb site, Doc can still be a good operator choice to support teammates who might be playing more aggressively. Try to stay positioned around the bomb site and communicate with your teammates what you see on the cameras as a way of keeping the defensive as fluid as possible.   POSITIONING: [BSMNT] KAYAKS(A) - SUPPLY(B)

  DEFENDING: [1F] SECURITY(A) - MAP(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control of the second floor east building as the ceiling of Security(A)-Map(B) is destructible, making it advantageous for attackers to first focus on control of the second floor as it will make a final push on to the bomb site much easier. Doc can be highly effective on this bomb site by playing inside of Map(B) behind the Map Table. From this position you will have access to a multitude of long-angles looking directly into the red stairs - a common route for attackers to take after they have breached the ceiling of the bomb site.   POSITIONING: [1F] SECURITY(A) - MAP(B)
